NBA Working On A 25-Day Plan For Return To Game Action


In the event that the NBA is given clearance to resume the 2019-20 season, the league wants to give players a chance to get back into game shape. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the league’s return to action will consist of a 25-day window split between individual workouts and a brief training camp.

What they’re looking at is a 25-day return to basketball window. Hopefully at some point they can enact it,” Windhorst said. “An 11-day series of individual workouts, where there’d be social distancing for a period of time, and then hopefully, if the clearance comes that they can play five-on-five basketball, a 14-day training camp.”

However, the widespread availability of such testing would also be necessary before the league implements such measures.

While the season’s fate is still hanging in the balance, it seems teams will need 25 days to prepare for an eventual return.
